Jaguars Vs. Texans Final Score: Matt Schaub Leads Houston To 21-14 Win

After going to halftime tied, the Houston Texans scored 17 second half points to defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 24-14. The victory gives the Texans a 5-3 record on the season and maintains their one game lead over the Tennessee Titans in the AFC South. 

The Texans captured the lead on their first possession of the second half when Joel Dreesen hauled in a seven yard touchdown pass from Matt Schaub. The Texans stretched the lead out further in the fourth quarter when Arian Foster scored on a four yard run to make the score 21-7.

The Jaguars were able to cut into the lead after they took advantage of a Ben Tate fumble. Maurice Jones-Drew capped off the seven play, 26 yard drive with a two yard touchdown plunge. However, Jacksonville couldn't get the needed stop to give themselves a shot at tying the game. Houston took over possession with 5:15 remaining and drove 59 yards for a Neil Rackers field goal with just 18 seconds remaining. 

Matt Schaub threw for 220 yards and a touchdown. Arian Foster was a workhorse racking up 112 yards on 33 carries with a touchdown. Ben Tate rushed for 42 yards on five carries but had that fumble in the fourth quarter that led to the Jaguars only touchdown of the second half.
